Apple Monument in Russia Reportedly Taken Down As a Result of Current CEO's Sexuality

A memorial in Russia dedicated to Apple’s Steve Jobs has been dismantled following the revelation that the technology company’s current CEO Tim Cook is gay.

Despite the fact that the monument was dedicated to Steve Jobs, ZEFS in Russia - who established the monument in the shape an iPhone - decided to take it down in the wake of Cook's revelations.

“In Russia, gay propaganda and other sexual perversions among minors are prohibited by law,” ZEFS statement reads. “After Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly called for sodomy, the monument was taken down to abide to the Russian federal law protecting children from information promoting denial of traditional family values."

The monument has reportedly been dismantled already and removed from its location outside a St Petersburg college.

It is claimed that politicians in Russia have also allegedly stated that Cook should not be allowed to enter the country following the news about his sexuality.
